This beautiful unheated Montana sapphire is a lovely pale yellow color, an unusual color not often seen in the Montana sapphires. The color can shift slightly with the lighting, appearing a bit more yellow-green in some lighting. The macro image shows a tiny natural feather but it is not visible in the hand without a 10x loupe. Its an eye-clean gemstone, and has incredibly high clarity, making it bright and scintillating in the hand.
This sapphire is faceted in my custom “Helena” oval brilliant design that I’ve designed and optimized for sapphire; the result is a glittering beauty of a gemstone. The gem weighs 2.61 carats and measures 8.6 x 7.0 x 5.6 mm. It would make an beautiful center stone for a unique and one-of-a-kind engagement ring.
